Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, My name is Jussara Lins and I'm very excited to be a part of your child's education.
I was born in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil and moved to the United States in June of 1992.
Since a young child, I have been fascinated by books and other cultures, especially the American culture and language.
After graduating from the School of Education of the Federal University of Santa Catarina, life gave me the opportunity to travel and live in Chicago, Illinois for one year.
After that, another opportunity took me to New Jersey and here I am up to this date.
I have worked in the district since the year 2000 and, since then, I have concluded my certification as a teacher of English as a Second Language as well as a Bilingual Teacher.
I'm a mother of 2 beautiful young adults, Bruno and Gabriela. Both my kids have graduated from college and are starting their own careers.
I fully understand the importance of helping our students grow academically and personally.
I'm looking forward to working with your child and supporting their growth as a student and as an individual.
